Of course, as a replica, this classic masterpiece was formed after the 1965 Shelby 427 S/C Cobra. The metallic body isn’t the only thing you'll buy in this car; it comes of course with all the good things that Shelby Cobras have.
Under the hood is a 650-horsepower (485-kilowatt) 8.4-liter 427 FE V8 engine made by Carroll Shelby Engine Company. It has a Borla Induction throttle-body fuel injection, as well, with the whole setup mated to a five-speed manual transmission. As far as replicas as concerned, this one packs quite a punch.
To complement the one-of-a-kind finish and wide body, this example also comes with stainless steel side pipes, a chrome roll bar, and a set of Halibrand-style knock-off rims. The latter is wrapped in Goodyear Eagle "billboard" tires for an added classic touch. As you can see in the images above, the interior comes with period-correct elements, most especially the black leather bucket seats and the leather-covered dashboard.
If you're interested in this example, it sells for $475,000 at RM Sotheby's, which you can follow at the source link below. It's currently located in New York, New York at this time.
